ASA Ipsec VPN site to site

I have a new ASA i'm putting in a new Colo site, I'm wanting to get as much configuration done as possible before i head there, can i setup that side of the IPSEC tunnel ahead of time and when i rack it and connect  it will connect automatically. Or does it have to be done live?

Yes of course, amd make sure you can manage the device from your main site in case there's a problem.

Cisco ASA – Allow Remote Management

allowing access to one address externally, I'd have to use the NAT ip address of the site that needs to remotely access correct?

So from my office to access the new ASA

ssh 12.8.x.x outside

also what if i have multiple subnets on each side that the other needs access to?

PetesASA(config)#object network Site-A-SN
PetesASA(config)#object network Site-B-SN
PetesASA(config)#access-list VPN-INTERESTING-TRAFFIC line 1 extended permit
ip object Site-A-SN object Site-B-SN
PetesASA(config)#nat (inside,outside) source static Site-A-SN Site-A-SN
destination static Site-B-SN Site-B-SN no-proxy-arp route-lookup
Firewall Running an OS Earlier than 8.3(x)

so i just need to create network objects for each subnet?
